Price, walking surface, stiffness, snowboard style top strap
Diabetes shoe style bottom two straps, some areas can get clammy.
My first dedicated bike shoe, these guys were a good way for me to find out of clipless was for me (it isn't). That isn't their fault though, these shoes were surprisingly comfortable, nice and stiff, and the ratcheting top strap make sure that my foot was always locked in. Biggest beef with this shoe though is that the ventilation is patchy. Toes get great (too good sometimes) ventilation, while my arches and mid-foot are stuck in a plasticky sauna. Oh well, you get what you pay for I guess.
